Weekly Interval #9:
Ascending Major 6th

Posted on: January 19th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the ascending Major 6th. The interval of the Major 6th is one of my favorites. To me, it sounds so happy and satisfied.  Play the interval on your instrument. Listen to it. Spend a week with this interval, play it in different keys, and listen for the melodies of familiar songs to jump out as you practice listening to the ascending Major 6th. If you do hear the melody to a song that starts with this interval other than those listed below post it in the comments section.

Key of C: C to A
Solfege Syllables: Do-La (pronounced Doe-La)
Open 3rd string to open 1st string
First two notes of:
Two of Us (Beatles)
It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
NBC Theme
The Days of Wine and Roses
Take The “A” Train
My Bonnie
